's important. since monday through today, romney kept or lost margin in one state to obama, not winning north carolina as much. it means as you look at average trends, this race isn't moving towards obama, it is moving in any direction towards romney, including in the swing states, and that trend and average is important. >> yeah, i disagree. i think it is actually stable and that's where i think the ground game everyone talks about matters most. i will tell you, women are not even, about 51, 52% for obama, he got 56%. only reason he's ahead nationally is he is doing okay with men. romney getting 51% of men, which means a small gender gap. >> dana, we will know for sure, i think that's totally wrong. president obama is losing white men by 30 plus points. he is going to -- >> talking all of it. >> he is going to get whacked by men by double digit margin. >> a huge drop. >> he could lose the election. >> see where he ends up with men, too. one of the surprising things in our poll in ohio, middle of the week, among white men, white men without college, holding obama for 43%, a lot higher than we

block just almost as big as the united states. it has more people in it. so, president obama and certainly we know from tim geithner, the treasury secretary who continually beats them over the head for europeans to do something. but they are powerless. they have to stand and watch. >> so, we know that over the last four years the president's tried this diplomacy with europe. has it worked? you say it's because he can't do anything. >> on economic grounds, absolutely. this is a debt crisis in the heart of the european countries. no matter how it started, no matter where it's going. it's up to the ecb, the european central bank and the central bank for europe and up to the imf and the u.s. could have some influence there. but fundamentally, fundamentally the u.s. has to stand on the sidelines and watch, be worried and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it

in the all-important state of ohio. president obama will be staying close to washington as he continues to monitor the developments of this storm. let's talk about ohio and why it is a particularly close race there. we asked likely voters who their choice was for president. barack obama has a 50% to 46% margin over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, i
a very tight race in the must-win state of ohio. president obama is at 50% and mitt romney is at 46%. i'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they now say they could. although if you look at the internals you see what you've been seeing all along. president obama is up with women about 12 points, mitt romney up with men by 8 points. romney has made some in roads in suburban areas, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum

. in the battleground state of wisconsin, volunteers for the obama and romney camps aren't easing up on their ground game in the final stretch. in fact, they are doubling down, knocking on more doors, making more phone calls to encourage as many of their supporters as possible to get to the polls on tuesday. our ted rowlands is in racine, wisconsin, this morning. i understand you caught up with some of these volunteers. >> yeah, randi, we went along with volunteers from both sides. this is a close race here and both campaigns are urging all their volunteers, not only from wisconsin, but from neighboring states to come here to wisconsin and help them get out the vote. this is what the political ground game looks like in racine, wisconsin. chelsea and adam are part of team romney and terry jackal is with team obama. each side is arm would addresses of people that support their candidate. their job is to meet them face-to-face, if nobody is home, leave a pamphlet, if somebody answers, get them to vote. >> i hope i'm making a difference. i believe that i am. >> reporter: both campaigns believe going doo
. romney is deploying his resources and previously won by double digit states of president obama's so we're down to the ground game. there's little that these gentlemen can say at this point that can exceed what their ground game has to do. we have a great ground game. we don't even -- our high propensity voters haven't even voted yet and i would disagree with my esteemed colleague and beautiful husband that it wasn't the debate, what happened at the debate was that romney filled the hole that voters wanted to be comfortable voting against barack obama and for mitt romney which is what romney's going to do for the next four years to grow the economy. there's nothing fundamental has changed. this economy is the worst ever, energy prices are not down and people are living the same life they lived four years ago. so that's what this race is about. not the polls. >> look, first of all, president obama won by 7.3 last time so he doesn't have the duplicate what he did in 2008 to win. secondly, there's a way that romney can win without ohio, but it takes a very complicated formula to do that. a
the ability to try things out for yourself if romney gets a certain state, if president obama gets a certain state. but this is something brand new here that i want you to see here. you can click on any state in the country and find out how much money each of the candidates have spent there, how many times they've visited there and how much money they have raised there. for example, you're in ohio. this shows here how much money president obama has spent and in that same time frame how much money mitt romney has spend. also how much of the spending went tol negative ads versus positive ads. fascinating. and then what you can do is compare any two states in any category. so take a look here. i was wondering how often the candidates have visited ohio and how often they visited colorado. so i typed in those two states and it shows me how many times in this campaign season they visited each and then you can snapshot each. you can take it and post it on twitter and facebook. speaking of facebook there was a study that find that facebook really can help get people to the poles. the i'm voting app
. president obama took the state in 2008 with a 4.5-point margin, but the state went for bush in 2000 and 2004. the election is up for grabs. the state is up for grabs. voters who have already voted in ohio favor president obama or mitt romney by a 2 to 1 margin. that's according to a new "time" magazine poll. voters who haven't voted yet are apparently evenly split. john is with me. he's qualified for this because he hailed from ohio. >> my mother and my grandmother still lives there. >> what are you looking for? what conversation are we going to have with those people in ohio? >> it's amazing again it's coming done to ohio and every vote counts. the swing states are the southern area around cincinnati, the area around youngstown, and up into toledo. the whole economic profile of ohio is tied up in the political profile. it's been the manufacturing backbone of the country and it's gotten gutted in the past three decades. >> steel, general manufacturing, and then autos. >> that's right. that's one of the reasons the auto bailout is a big reason in ohio and why it's a benefit to president obama
: christie wasn't the only gop governor in sandy's path to hear from obama. swing state governors of virginia and pennsylvania were also on a presidential call on tuesday. >> and dana joins me now. and as you said, dana, in your piece, the president will be with governor christie tomorrow in new jersey. obviously, we'll be covering that closely. there is some politicking going on kind of underneath the radar, isn't there? >> there is, of course, no surprise. in this case it's democrats that are really pushing a story that romney would slash federal disaster relief, even get rid of fema, and they're basing that primarily on a cnn debate last year during the republican primaries when romney said that the federal role should be limited during a disaster. he said that states, even the private sector should have more power. now, romney was asked multiple times today in ohio to clarify that position on fema, but he didn't answer. afterwards, romney's campaign insisted that he would not eliminate fema. that may be true, anderson, but romney's plan overall to reduce the deficit would mean cutting spe
that goes. president obama and new jersey governor chris christie are going to tour parts of the state of new jersey tomorrow. atlantic city is obviously on the president's schedule. lorenzo langford is the mayor of atlantic city. he joins us now by phone. mayor langford, your city was truly slammed by this superstorm. the boardwalk smashed, areas flooded. fudge, give's a status update. >> well, i think we're coming out of this thing in pretty good shape, believe it or not. our biggest concern at this point is trying to restore power to 1/3 of our residents. once we're able to do that, i'm hopeful state police will open up the roads into atlantic city to allow for passage of our residents who have been moved into higher ground in shelters outside the city tone able them to come back in and return to their humble abodes. that's our biggest concern right now. >> were there any casualties? >> we had one casualty. we haven't determined as of yet whether or not it was an atlantic city resident. but one of the shelters where some of our residents had been moved to did realize a fatality, i s
, this is really one of the key swing districts in the swing state of north carolina, which president obama won by only 14,000 votes four years ago. so we've bee talking to voters here. and it's fascinating. the american people are smart. even the folks who are swing voters, folks leaning romney are saying, look, one of the gentlemen we spoke to said, i hope this identity of the general election is where romney would be as president instead of moving to the right in the primaries that he had to do to get the nomination. one woman said the government considers me poor, but i'm concerned about the borrowing. there's concern about foreign policy under the romney administration. one woman said her brother's in the military. concerned about what that might mean for him. and one independent voter who's voting for president obama saying that she just doesn't believe mitt romney. and she isn't sure where his core is at. this has been a tensely fought state. the polls are really tight, and trending toward mitt romney. >> i want to talk more about the early voting. because there's been a lot of focus on
hurt president obama by depressing the early vote in battle ground states. the battleground states, nam, and virginia, don't worry about early person voting, not really a determine for the obama campaign. the storm could affect early voter turnout. but the states hardest hit are blue states, new jersey, new york, and connecticut. they are still likely to go for president obama. cnn, jessica yellin, the white house. >> here with the hoboken mayor, dawn zimmer what a day a day makes. the national guard hadn't arrived. and this is what she said about it last night. >> we are desperate for the national guard to come in we need their specialized equipment to get through city streets to safely get the people and evacuate those out of the national guard. >> you have been asking? >> i have been asking. chain of command. >> what are you hearing? >> they are coming, they are coming, they are coming, but they are not here. >> that was last night, we heard that around 8:00, shortly after, you got word they were coming and they arrived about 1:00 a.m. how are things now? >> we appreciate governor ch
avalon is in virginia, a state that president obama won four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground game. >> they were going after every single de
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm your guy. the question is you are sort of leaning towards me. do i go out and do it. mitt romney has made some errors in the last week or so in ohio, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no republican has ever won the presidency without taking a state. let's take a look at very latest data. a c
